Biological Challenges to Humanity: Emerging and Re-emerging Pathogens

The Whitehead Symposium, the Institute's longest-running outreach program, celebrates its twentieth anniversary this year. Researchers from around the nation and the world will gather at Kresge Auditorium on the Massachusetts Institute for Technology campus to discuss "Biological Challenges to Humanity: Emerging and Re-emerging Pathogens."

While we have more information than ever before on viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens that plague humanity, new concerns are constantly arising--from drug resistant organisms to the threat of biological weapons. Armed with increasing amounts of genomic data and new biotechnologies, scientists are addressing these arising challenges to better understand how pathogens interact with hosts and the environment. The distinguished speakers will discuss the latest results at the forefront of infectious disease research.

Each year, the three-day seminar on a topic selected for its timeliness and broad scientific appeal attracts over 1,000 scientists from the national and international research community.
